Battlefields Park, combining the Plains of Abraham and Des Braves Park, is an historic park in the heart of Quebec City. Witness to clashes between French and British troops and the the 1759 history changing conquest, this 103-hectare park is now a city treasure  enjoyed by residents and tourists alike. We left our amazing lunch at Le Hobbit and walked to the park and then followed the Dufferin Boardwalk along to the heart of Vieux-Quebec.

We entered the park here, near the Joan of Arc Monument.

 

A perfect crisp day for exploring.

Remains of battle.

Looking out across the St-Lawrence.

Beautiful vantage points at every turn.

Continuing along the Dufferin Terrace.

The beautiful boardwalk below the Chateaux Frontenac. When we were here two years ago, parts of this boardwalk were under reconstruction while the historic old fort was being excavated and turned into an historic site.
